Allowed to be mysterious

Better neighboorhoods are like that Tolstoy quote
"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way."

Not that scrappy developments are unhappy, I just mean that they are not all groomed to a bland consensus. Quirky things happen.

I came upon this enigmatic structure by the curb. It is not at all cute. It's brutal. All the elements of a building, but why? Was it a fortress for a psychotic guinea pig? A Tower of London for a deposed chihuahua? Are those windows for defense? or for seeing a small patch of... car tires? It even has a moat!

Some things are best left unanswered and mysterious.

Very mysterious. It makes me curious about it. It looks like the inside is very small compared to the outside, but perhaps, not? Where did you see this? I would love to see this???
